Well, when I say happy to share that doesnt mean me just dropping it to people.
Okay, so how are you going to figure out who is trustworthy? Number of spots visited? Amount of years exploring? General reputation? Not a single one of those factors is a sure fire way to determine if someone is going to respect a place. And you don't know who that person is friends with either. I've known a lot of people who I thought to be good enough to share with indiscriminately. I've almost always been burned. And there are probably people who feel the same way about me too. Usually when friendships end you start to second guess things like that.
It doesn't really matter anyway. It's all about getting to things early these days. Almost anything that gets popular and ruined has been someone's "secret" for years. And those people probably wouldn't be sharing anything good that would make it to your map anyway.
I don't mean to sound like a bitter asshole, but it's sorta hard when you are one. At least online anyway. Another reason why you can't always go by someone's online alter-ego when trying to figure out who they really are.
